The Simple iMovie Editing for musicians course will help you become comfortable in the editing software iMovie, which comes FREE with any mac computer. (YAY free!) The course will teach you how to improve your editing techniques from titles & graphics to coloring. AND … lets face it, ultimately the most important thing that this course will do is save you lots of time & money, by being able to edit your videos all by yourself.

Being a musician is a daily grind…There is never enough time in a day to respond to fan emails, create content, write songs, perform shows, personal marketing, brand strategizing, creating artwork. It’s a constant battle! Not only that, but a lot of musicians (me included) just don’t have the cash flow to constantly hire new people to create videos to promote their music… I totally get it! I didn’t have $$$ when I was just starting out either, but I still understood the importance of video and knew that I had to do SOMETHING. So I learned how to make my own videos, giving me the creative freedom I was looking for. This allowed me to promote my music visually, WITHOUT having to hire out the jobs or rely on anyone else.

If you take the course, you’ll finally be creatively independent with your own videos! With your hard work and dedication, this is my promise to you. Get started on the journey of learning a new craft, while having limitless opportunities to practice and grow, by creating your OWN music videos as often as you like.


Upon enrolment, you will get instant access to 7 step-by-step videos jam packed with lessons, ideas, best practices and examples. You will also get 5 course printouts including a checklist, a pocket book, software navigation page and chapter overviews. In addition to these course materials, you’ll also get an invitation to join a private facebook group that I created for all students enrolled in my courses. This will be a place where I will be interacting one-on-one with you, answering your questions, and showing encouragement for the video goals you are setting for yourself. This will also be a place where you can share your work and progress with other students, ask questions, help each other with ideas, and support one another though your journeys as creatives. –And we can ALWAYS use more of that ????
